2 stars Probably one of the weakest of their live albums, with far too much Nik Turner showmanship on the '84 tracks for my taste (although not quite reaching the depths of the "Night of the Hawks" DVD). That said, this does contain a fun version of 'Orgone Accumulator' done at near punk speed, and the unreleased 'Damned By the Curse of Man', which is actually Turner reciting a Michael Moorcock poem to musical backing. The '89 songs aren't much hotter, with the band not quite reaching the peak that they would attain the next year with the release of 'Space Bandits' and the subsequent tour. Nice version of the rarely recorded 'Dragons and Fables' though. Despite all this (or more accurately, because of all this), 'Files' is still only for Hawkwind completists.
